Okay, so I am new here so I do not know much about how this forum works yet. I have a few of questions.
1. Is there a way to see all articles (and only articles, I do not want their comments to also be search results) posted by a particular user.
I don't know of any such way.
2. Where would I post an alchemy related question (technically it is a alchemy book related question)? Would it go under the Magick category?
I would go for the Magick forum.
3. How can I edit my profile? I can not add pictures or an signature like the other users can. Do I have to wait a certain period of time or something of the sort.
You are suppossed to have about 10 posts before you will be able to change your profile.
4. I am trying to figure out the format of this forum; it looks like it is HTML. Am I able to use HTML to code my posts?
It is joomla, so html+php+css+mysql. And no, you cannot use html in your posts because of cross site scripting, but you can use bb codes
5. Is there a way to receive emails when a post I made has a reply/message?
I think it's a default for threads you have created or replied to. If you want to receive replies or new posts from some thread (or a board), then use a suited NOTIFY button.
Anyway, welcome here and have your welcome cow
